Intersection: Micayla Gatto
Mountain biker Micayla Gatto takes the viewer into her world as a painter and as an athlete, riding through beautifully created masterpieces where colours come to life and reality blends with art.
Tsirku (Tour Edit)
Having to endure particularly adverse conditions preventing this team of skiers access onto the Tsirku Glacier at the Yukon/Alaskan border, the athletes face bigger obstacles once at the base of their mountain, Corrugated. Mammoth cornices block their intended lines and mountain guide Sam Anthmatten helps them find a way onto the snowy spine wall.
Iceland. A cold, rugged and forbidding landscape where powerful rivers plunge through bedrock gorges, over massive waterfalls toward the sea. A crew of French kayakers travel here to ask the question, “Why? Why do we do this?”
Searching for Christmas Tree
A university teacher breaks free from a life of routine in China and embarks on a quest to climb a mysterious frozen waterfall that no one knows about.
Where The Wild Things Play
There's an ongoing dialogue of asking why aren't there more females in the adventure industry? Whether it’s in big mountain skiing, climbing, or whitewater kayaking. Well it's about time we found out Where The Wild Things Play.
Dreamwalkers - The Faroes Project (Tour Edit)
Four friends set out on an adventure to be the first to highline in one of the most unlikely of places: the Faroe Islands.
Imagination: Tom Wallisch
Have you ever been that little kid sitting in the back seat of your parents car, wishing you were somewhere else? So you imagine a skier on the side of the road, your fingers commanding back flips and roof drops, improbable rail slides and huge airs. Well what if your imagination came to life?
